Maths and Statistics and Real World Applications

Dechant, M. (2011). Math Outside. [CC: BY NC SA]
A student doing research this week for her science degree spoke about how natural events from tree growth to cyclones have underlying mathematical explanations.

Interestingly enough, JCU lecturing and research staff member  Dr Yvette Everingham will give the 2014 Last Lecture The Math Lesson You Always Wanted But Never Had. The whole talk will be devoted to mathematical and statistical application in the real world.

You can seek out research by JCU staff on ResearchOnline@JCU or, if you are interested in applied mathematics, browse our collection for such titles as Applied Mathematics by J. David Logan (also available as an eBook).
